|The annual Splash exhibition is a highlight of the New Zealand Arts calendar and a not-to-be-missed event. Two exhibitions, Splash-2020 and Ceramicus, each one an outstanding show, are combining again to present a treat for art lovers at the Academy Galleries in Wellington. This major art gallery is located in the heart of the city in the historic harbour office building at the entrance to Queens Wharf.|
This year’s Splash 2020 guest is world renowned artist, Svetlana Orinko from Christchurch. Svetlana grew up in the Ukraine and inherited her artistic abilities from her father. She has won many awards and is known for her detailed floral compositions and skilful portraiture. Her style can be best described as Contemporary Realism. Her vibrant, masterly paintings promise to be a highlight of the show.
Splash 2020, the national exhibition of Watercolour New Zealand Inc., featured over 300 paintings by professional and amateur artists from Whangarei to Invercargill. Exhibiting artists include the top names in New Zealand watercolour, among them Adrienne Pavelka, Svetlana Orinko, Jacky Pearson, Bernadette Parsons, Peter Coates, Wendy Masters, Brian Baxter, Richard Bolton, Alan Collins, Dianne Taylor, Sue Wild, Kimbra Taylor, Min Kim, Joy De Geus and Roger Daniell. The Exhibition is now over, however, the works will continue to be available to browse online.
